Hi! This is Amy Willson aboard the catamaran ‘Free spirit’. Captain Russell
Eddington and I are sailing from Galapagos Islands to Marquesas, South
Personally, I am sailing from Europe around the world, via Caribbean,
Panama, New Zealand, back home to South Africa and then back on up to
Europe. I left from France last November and expect to arrive back in the
Mediterranean in a couple of year’s time, after traveling New Zealand,
Australia, Asia and Indonesia.
Russell is owner and skipper of this boat and has sailed her from Brazil,
where she was built, via Columbia.
We have a fine breeze coming out of the South-East, trade winds found us
at last. Swell is moderate, the sun is out and we are eating a tuna fish we
caught yesterday. With 1437miles to the Marquesas, we are looking forward
to touching land again after an aprox. 18days voyage.
Hiking, horse back riding, scuba diving and surfing, as well as discovering
the indigenous culture and people, are all activities that I am eagerly waiting
to do in some of the most remote parts of the world.
After these islands most boats will head down to the Tuamotu islands,
Society (Tahiti), Cook islands, Samoan islands, Tonga or Fiji then down to
New Zealand or across to Australia.
I am hoping to be in the Samoa islands in July/August, were the South
Pacific games are being held this year.
Light and Love
To whoever finds this message.
Let me know if such an event of fate occurs:
“Talk to the universe, listen for its reply.
Be on intimate terms with nature, see life in everything.
Carry yourself as a child of the universe.
Let not your heart be not trouble nor let it be afraid.
There is nothing like dreams to create the future,
Flesh and blood tomorrow.”
Best of luck with everything you take on in life!
Amy Jaye Willson
